The colorway is a very dark red with purple tones as well.
I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of extra-soft superwash merino and nylon.
The Winedark Sea on Sock Perfection
450 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
80% extra-soft superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
The Winedark Sea would look great with Beowulf, Autumn Leaves, Afremov's Farewell to Anger, or Impressions of Autumn.
I included a hat I knit up using this colorway on Wonderful Worsted. It should give you an idea of how the colorway will work up, but keep in mind that how it looks will vary a lot depending on the pattern, the yarn base, and even the individual skein.
